So, I am 28, and I’ve notice some fine lines around my eyes. The problem is, I also suffer from acne, and so I can’t mess with my face regime without breaking out. I might just be the luckiest girl in the world, wrinkles and acne! Jealous anyone? However, I was thinking of trying an eyecream to fight the wrinkles around my eyes. Does anyone have anything that works?

@lawyerchick13: No such thing as a “wrinkle cream”. It’s an ages old marketing term. Moisturizing the area around your eyes will help prevent creping (sp?). I recommend Skyn Iceland. It comes in a pen-like applicator so you never have to worry about contaminating it with your fingers. I have very oily, acne prone skin also and this product has been working great for me for years.

@lawyerchick13: retin a is the only product that actually helps rebuild collagen. Some insurance companies won’t cover it after a certain age- it is for acne. My dr diagnosed me w acne & put me on it at 24. 10 yrs later I have no wrinkles.
Barring that, I would suggest something with retinol.

Try the neutrogena rapid wrinkle repair moisturizer. Only apply it on your neck and specifically the areas that have wrinkles, it made my cheeks break out a little. Put it on before you sleep. Start with a little because depending on your sensitivity it may burn a little (not really burn but you may feel a little heat). I have incredibly deep wrinkles under my eyes and they were GONE the next day. That being said you need to wear sunscreen and drink lots of water every day to prevent more damage to your skin.
The thing is, usually you have wrinkles where you keep moving the skin over and over, so they will keep coming back. I would consider this more of a temporary fix that will keep you looking nice when you wake up, probably by the end of a whole day of partying your wrinkles will be back.
It’s only $20 or so, so you can try it without paying a ton of of money.
My grandma was in her 90’s and looked like she was in her 60’s, she just moisturized a tonnn and didn’t go tanning on purpose.

I would highly suggest going to a dermatoligst and getting a prescription for Retin A (Tretinoin). Retin A can help with your acne and fine lines. You’d probably be prescribed the 0.05% strength first and it’s safe to use under your eyes. Tip – apply it at night and start wearing a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Retin A will make you very sensitive to the sun.
Another addition to your skincare regimine should be Vitamin C serum. This link will explain why it is so freaking awesome.
Other than that.. moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. And sunscreen.
